We want to get our show on at Edinburgh's Free Fringe. AUSTEN POWER is a funny and touching play and deserves to be enjoyed by many.

by Zoey Barnes in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

The books in their family shop are gathering dust, Selene hasn’t had a proper meal since Waterstones got a website and Elpis is shagging away all the customers. Wrestling with control, grief and often each other, the two sisters try to salvage their beloved shop. This brand new play will give you a quick fix of life itself.

AUSTEN POWER will be shown in Bar Bados Room 8 at 5pm from the 14th-24th August as part of PBH's Free Fringe 2019.

We were given slots fairly last minute but still wanted to seize the opportunity to get our work on at the Fringe and be part of the festival madness. We are both still early on in our careers so it will be great experience and exposure for us. 

We can't wait to show it to the world and see where it leads us. The potential is great and possibilities are endless!
